Fostering taught us that healthy culture is everything

Many foster kids have been in dozens of homes before their teen years. Unless you want to be just another home on their hurtful journey — you have to learn how to create a healthy culture. We cared for 37 foster kids, mostly short-term, over 7 years — this period of time inspired the work we do today.
